    Reply

  25. it wasn’t that long ago (just last year if i remember right) that these 404 galleries would consist of pages that blamed the user for mistyping and stuff..

    it’s good to see that times are changing and that sites are taking ownership for the 404s and making them more useful to the end user.. humor doesn’t hurt, either.

    thanks for the taking the time to gather the links.
